In the week before Christmas..

…some of us will be missing something that shared in the excitement of last year. “Only dogs” people say who don’t share their lives with them but to us they are so much part of our lives they stand proud as family. So for all Glen of Imaal Terriers, and indeed all dogs, who aren’t there to gaze at the Christmas tree this year the following is dedicated and Alfie (Wickholm In The Line of Fire) who only left¬†recently will take the message along to all who have gone before.

Do not mourn my passing for if you could only see
By slipping all my earthly bonds, I’m young again and free.
By day I run the Heavenly fields, my body healthy and strong
At night I sleep at Angels’ Feet, lulled by Celestial Song.
So do not mourn my passing, just close your eyes – you’ll see
I’m once again that frisky pup, just as you remember me.
